Tourism Overview

The tourism sector in the UAE looks set to record another good year in 2011, after a strong recovery in the previous year. In the period January-September 2011, Dubai hotels played host to 6.64mn guests (including UAE residents), an increase of 11% compared with the first three quarters of 2010. This is a slight moderation in growth though since Q111, when the number of guests rose a solid 14% year-on-year (y-o-y). In Abu Dhabi, during the first eight months of 2011 data show a good 13% y-o-y increase in tourists (including UAE arrivals) at hotels and hotel apartments (despite a fall in arrivals y-o-y in August), to over 1.3mn guests. Arrivals from Europe were up a marked 19% y-o-y, buoyed by a 24% increase in visitors from France, and growth of 18% and 17% in arrivals from the UK and Germany respectively.
